Ken's niece mentioned recently that she is a Dog Person rather than a Cat Person, and I remembered that I had this scrap of doggie fabric in my stash. So this will be her Xmas present.
I finished the mediaeval fabric runner, but am not happy with it. I chose the yellow fabric for the border, thinking it would match the yellow tones in the feature fabric, but it doesn't do much for the runner at all. Somebody suggested I used lace to embellish it, so I put a row of lace with blue ribbon threaded through, down the middle. Then I added another lace to the border, trying to sew it between the front and the backing fabrics, but I stuffed up the corners and had to cut them. AAAAAGH what a mess! Oh well, the whole thing was just a way to used up some stash in a hurry, so it's not going anywhere out of this house. It will probably be folded up and put at the bottom of a pile of other experiments which never see the light of day! Do you have
Hoping this project will be more successful than the runner. I bought this cute fabric at one of the stitches and craft shows a year or so ago. It can be used in several ways, making up a picture by joining up the individual owl groups, or making separate place mats, mug rugs, etc.
I chose to make up a picture using them all. Next thing is to add a border or two, and backing, and ta da! Another wall hanging.
